    Hi Christa

    We have the Kewer with pop up roof, so one of the new designs.

    They fitted 2 handles spaced evenly if you know what I mean. I really need to hang onto them to get the roof down but it has become easier with time and my technique has improved.

    We have a bigger solar panel fitted so Iím happy with the configuration.

    I remember on the rental unit we had with angled roof that it was easier to open the canvas window and hold the roof itself with one hand while gripping the handle with the other. Iím sure youíve tried this though so maybe it just needs to be adjusted?

    Your van must feel like new with all the new goodies!

    It should not be that hard to close
    No change in design, the slanted roofs are all the same. They say 480 nm on them.

    I am glad to have the van back, but it was a difficult process.

    Just asking again, can someone maybe just have a look on their BL what the rating of the pop-up roof gas struts is for a slanted roof. Pretty please

    Hi

    On my Kewer, I close the Back first then the front. So not pulling down on both handles. Whilst the roof was us not locked into place, I was on top[ of it and held my weight with no problem.

    I weigh 90kg.

    It is also new so overtime they will soften up.

    My 2 cents worth.
